Hello guys!
Right so were a young couple from London (UK) and were looking to emmigrate.
We'v been looking at Georgia but to be quite honest dont have a clue where we would want to live in Georgia. We like the idea of everyone being really friendly which Georgia is famous for
We're both self employed as well so a few tips on the old economy would be great!

Any advise would be fab.

CHEARS!

Self-employed doing what? The economy in general sucks right now, but it's impossible to sy what might be a good location for you without knowing what kind of market you need.

Well i run my own dance school which doesn't really need me anymore and my partner is a dog behaviourist and worked in the building trade for many years before. What would that be like out there. I know the economy over here is ruined. Apparent from London area all up north (birmingham ect) is rough, its hard for people to find work ect

Uhm, how do you intend to make this move legally? You understand that you can't simply show up, establish a business/find a job, and stay, right?

Do you have permanent residency? If not, how are you going to obtain it?

As a non-native GA guy married to a GA women who has history from well before the civil war all in GA (and living in GA)... Georgia being famous for everyone being friendly is about as accurate as folks from England being famous for having truly Aweful teeth. It may have been true once upon a time, and there Might be some hold-over today in odd places, but it's generally not true.

On the other hand, you're going to be "interesting" and different by way of your accent so you'll find people being friendly anywhere in the US. Is there are particular reason you picked GA over FL, SC, NC, VA or any other state for that matter? You know that it's Very hot and humid here ~ as an example, we're already hitting 70's F/20's C and it's going to do nothing but get hotter ~ looks like humidity is about the same (80%+) as London. Speaking as someone from a climate more on track with London, it's miserable here and there are only a few months of the year when I can stand to be outside. If it were not for my wife, I would be somewhere much cooler, and much prettier (subjective, I know)

Point being, if you're going to move and have the option to go anywhere, you're going to find nearly everywhere in the US equally friendly. Might as well hit as many wish-list items as possible. You could start with mentioning why you want to move ~ what's lacking about your current home that you want to include, or what's present that you want to remove. Then you can go further and mention what you love that you don't want to lose. Lots of people here have been all over this country (I've personally lived in 12 different states for more than 1 year) and might be able to point you in a Better direction. Or, they might just confirm that somewhere in GA is the best option. Hard to say.

To be honest with you we really don't have a clue where we want to move too. We would like somewhere busy but not to busy and somewhere with nice weather, because there is one stereotype that is true about London and thats the weather :/.
As far as current lacking in our home, its not lacking as in we cant bare it we would just like to move and have a change. We are extremely open to ideas if you have any suggestions.
Any from of direction would be great
